Olay is one of the best drugstore brands in the market. It is the best when it comes to providing anti-aging skincare at affordable prices. It has never failed to impress the beauty world with its result oriented anti aging products. Today I am going to share my mom’s experience with one of the much raved products from the brand – Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream.
Product Description :
Micro-Sculpting Cream is formulated with hyaluronic acid, amino-peptides and Vitamin B3. It hydrates to help plump cells from within the skin’s surface. The luxurious-feeling moisturizer immediately softens the look of fine lines and wrinkles, while firming the look of skin with plumping hydration.

The Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream does not have Retinol, the most common anti-wrinkle ingredient in it, although this is an anti aging product. It has Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin B5, Amino Peptides and a lot of anti oxidants that provides anti aging benefits and makes skin plumper, softer and smoother.
How should you use the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream?
If you follow a Simple Basic Routine, after cleansing and toning apply a pea sized of the cream all over the face and neck and massage it well until absorbed.
If you follow a 10 Step Routine, apply it as the last step of your routine since this cream is thick & occlusive and will lock all the nutrients of previous products.
The Micro Sculpting Cream can be used in both day and night time routine. It does not have any sun sensitivity ingredients in it, so its safe to use during the mornings.
Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream Review:
The Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream is a product that is designed for age groups above 40’s. It can be used by those who are beginning their anti aging routine, nevertheless. This product was used by my mom. who is in her 50’s. She has dry skin with pigmentation spots and with obvious fine lines & wrinkles. She has been using this cream from Olay for about two months now and I wanted to share you all how beautifully this cream worked for her.
Packaging: The product comes in a red colored glass jar with a screw lid. My mom loves red so she finds the tub to be attractive and it stands out among her other skincare products. Being a hygiene freak, I prefer a tube but she doesn’t mind that. Glass tub packaging makes it not so travel friendly, but she has traveled with it and it did not break. Use a spatula or clean fingers to take the product out to avoid contamination.
Color & Texture: The Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream is a white colored rich cream. It has a medium consistency which spreads easily and seeps into the skin within minutes of application.
Fragrance: I have the Olay Micro Sculpting Cream Moisturizer in Original which has a soft floral fragrance. It not strongly scented and fades away soon after application. There is a fragrance free version of this cream available as well.
My mom finds this cream to be extremely moisturizing on her dry skin. She loves the way how it makes her skin soft and supple immediately after application. This can be used both as a day & night cream. Though, she prefers to use this as a night cream as there is ample time for repairing. It does go well under makeup too. Only a pea sized quantity was needed for her face and neck, so one tub lasted long. The one I have does not have SPF, so a separate sunscreen is needed on top of this, if you use this mornings. To save the hassle, you can get the SPF version for day time and non-SPF version for night time.
Coming to its performance, honestly I think the brand makes tall claims to reduce fine lines on day 1. Anyway we didn’t expect any miracles to happen on day one itself. Over continuous usage, we could see that it gradually reduced her fine lines and crow feet. It evened out her skin tone and made her skin firmer and tighter. There was no much difference on her pigmentation spots though. The Micro Sculpting Scream did not cause any breakouts or have any side effects on her skin. In all, She totally loves this cream. It improved her overall skin texture. Price might be an issue for some. Anti aging Creams never come cheap though. For something that works, my mom doesn’t mind price!
